Cleaning the apartment extensively, as I have had problem with scabies for over a month. Otherwise enjoying good food, gaming and programming.




“Replacing Twitter” implies that there is a need for Twitter or that Mastodon and Twitter can’t coexist.


This community is on lemmy.ml and not about technical support of the instance nor other instances. The place for asking support in Sopuli’s case is !meta@sopuli.xyz. Regardless:

It looks like you tried to register an account in March when I had problems with Sopuli’s verification emails getting into spam folder. This was also before registration applications were turned on for Sopuli. I have deleted the account you mentioned from Sopuli’s database. Try to register an account again!


Well, it’s usually expected.


Don’t forget the late Satoru Iwata of Nintendo.



Elon Musk has done a tremendous job in making alternative social media platforms flourish!


I have put bookmarks for websites mainly to Firefox’s bookmark menu. I have put RSS feeds and bookmarklets for Instapaper and archive.is into the bookmark bar.


Guess I have been doing good, even though I’m still unemployed. I failed one company’s programming puzzle and feels like I have gotten more motivation to learn programming on my spare time. Might continue developing my own projects. Also I feel more motivated to practice guitar.

Feels also refreshing to see more Finnish users on Fediverse after Elon Musk bought Twitter, many of which are not just interested of FOSS and technology. The world may not be doing well but Fediverse is.



And as a counterpoint there is also Meduza that is independent: https://meduza.io/en


Good article that criticizes Pew Research Center's new report of reducing "alternative social media" just to sites like Parler, Gab, Truth Social and so on. It makes a good explanation of the Fediverse (referred as "citizens’ social media") and sees it as an antidote to the propaganda and misinformation promoted on those platforms. > More nuance is needed here: the Pew report focuses solely on what mass media scholar Kristoffer Holt calls “right-wing alternative media.” And in doing so, it misses a more democratic form of alternative media, what communication scholar Clemencia Rodríguez refers to as “citizens’ social media.” > And for all of us tired of both big tech and online trolling, citizens’ social media is our way forward.

FFDP is radio-friendly crap that has nothing to do with heaviness. When it comes to band recommendations, try The Dillinger Escape Plan for example.

Oh, some progress has been made: Zucc’s avatar no longer looks like a Mii!

Pop OS and 5.1 surround audio is messed up
I have Logitech's Z506 surround speakers and I run the latest version of Pop OS. I noticed that when 5.1 analog output is selected through Pop OS's audio settings, the order of speakers is messed up: for example front center is suddenly rear left, subwoofer is rear right and center is rear left. When 5.0 output is selected, the order of speakers is all right. What makes this more weird is that when I used `speaker-test -c6 -twav`, every speaker is just fine. Could something be wrong with PipeWire?
